IntlHomoConsLarry-bob Roberts is into sparking culture, politics, and creating fusions between the two. Since 1989, he has been publishing in print (and now online) the queer culture zine, Holy Titclamps. In The International Homosexual Conspiracy, a series of cultural polemics on an unexpected array of contemporary topics — from mistaken first impressions (“Presumed Hetero Unless Proven Gay”) to sustainable yet unaffordable pants (“Socially Responsible Pants”) to critiques of bourgeois mindsets (“Middle Class Writer”) — author Larry-bob Roberts offers hilarious insights into the absurdities of modern life and queer culture. His humorous observations are destined to jostle readers’ complacency and confirm their worst suspicions.

Straight people need this book to learn what one of those freaky queers thinks. Mainstream gays need this book to see that there are other ways of expressing homosexuality culturally. Non-mainstream queers need this book to read something that reflects their own points of view. Readers with short attention spans need this book because the chapters are in bite-sized pieces. Fans of satire need this book for a good laugh. Fundamentalist Christians need this book as evidence of the decadence of modern society. In a humorously confrontational way, The International Homosexual Conspiracy is not only raging, but also engaging.

“Astute, as well as relatively ego-free, Roberts is one of the gay anarchist movement’s clearest
thinkers.” — Dennis Cooper, author of Closer
